A Great Classical for Live Playing

The CGX102 acoustic-electric nylon-string classical guitar is an expansion of the already popular CG classical guitar series. Yamaha has combined quality tonewoods with an onboard preamp that offers versatile tone control and professional amplification. You'll get a natural, resonant tone from the spruce top, and the rosewood fingerboard and bridge provide you with accurate and smooth response. And, with the new System 68N preamp and precision tuner, the CGX102 will keep you in tune and sounding great if you're playing live. Become a student of the classical guitar with the Yamaha CGX102.

Yamaha CGX102 Acoustic-electric Classical Guitar at a Glance:
  • Great sounding spruce top
  • System 68N preamp offers versatile tone control
  • Great for learning classical guitar
Great sounding spruce top

Sweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of a nylon-string guitar. For the CGX102, Yamaha chose a spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, spruce has a rich sound with excellent projection. And because it's a spruce top, the tone of your Yamaha CGX102 will age gracefully with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.

System 68N preamp offers versatile tone control

A natural tonal reproduction in a classical guitar preamp is important, and the System 68N preamp delivers. The Yamaha contact pickup and precision tuner keep you sounding your best. With such tonal clarity and advanced amplification, the Yamaha CGX102 is an ideal classical guitar for live performance.

Great for learning classical guitar

The wide nut of the classical guitar is essential for proper classical technique. The Yamaha CGX102 offers a wider nut not generally found on classical guitars in this price range. The wider string spacing found on the CGX102 is ideal for learning rest stroke, free stroke, or rasgueados. If you're considering entering the world of classical guitar, the Yamaha CGX102 is an ideal instrument to start with.

Yamaha CGX102 Acoustic-electric Classical Guitar Features:
  • Spruce top
  • Nato back and sides
  • Rosewood fingerboard and bridge
  • System 68N preamp with precision tuner

Another Amazing Yamaha Product

I don't think Yamaha makes a bad product. I am a keyboard player of 49 years and a steel 6 string guitarist of 39 years. I have been frustrated with the thin necks and narrow nut (string spacing) of steel string guitars. So I bought this guitar which has the widest nut and neck in the business. This is my first venture into classical guitars, I have always loved the sound of steel and wood, but I am beginning to also love this new nylon/wood tone. And this guitar has a very smooth even tone, and I don't have to be light fingered on the "B" and high "E" strings anymore, you have to "hit em to get em". I am also a recording engineer and have a very critical ear for tone, this "cheap" guitar has a very beautiful tone, projected well and listen-able as the performer. The trouble with guitars is the audience hears a better tone than the performer, the player is not at a good listening angle to the guitar when playing it. But this guitar sounds good to the performer. This is a great guitar for me to expand my skills into the classical domain. As a fingerstyle and flatpicker, I fingerstyle off the fleshy tips of fingers, not using the nail. This guitar sound mellow under this style. Flat picking this guitar for solo riffs also sounds very nice. You can't go wrong with this guitar for your first classical or, like me, a seasoned performer with a new style of guitar.
